This support enhances all that we do for our students.Inspiration happens daily

Hockinson Schools believe in the unlimited potential of every student. We know that engaging learning experiences and responsive instruction delivered by teachers who show they care will inspire our leaders. In turn, our learners inspire us!We build on the past...

Education is a Hockinson tradition that dates back to 1870. Hockinson Schools have been built on the cornerstones of relevance, relationships, creative solutions, and continuous improvement....and look to the future

Our schools are innovating to better serve our students and families. We have expanded early learning programming and our 1:1 tech initiative. In 2020, we launched the Hockinson Virtual Academy for students who prefer an online learning experience or are unable to attend school in person.

Hockinson High School offers career pathways and college-in-the-classroom opportunities in addition to its Advanced Placement and Skill Center options. Hockinson's TK-12 program embraces enrichment opportunities, including cultural experiences, field trips, service learning, and a variety of school-based activities and athletics. Customized learning helps each student develop critical academic and social skills that prepare them for future success. 

Hockinson proudly supports lifelong learning for all and it shows! For this and so many other reasons, we feel Hockinson schools are the Heart of the Community. Click here to see a history of banners that illustrate the love between Hockinson and its schools.

HSD History

It was the summer of 1870 when a group of citizens from the small settlement of Eureka, Washington (which would come to be known as Hockinson) gathered together to establish a public school. From this desire to educate young people in the community, a school board was born, and the seeds of Hockinson School District had been planted.

Today, over 150 years since that fateful meeting, Hockinson School District carries on a tradition of preparing all students for lifelong success. With a commitment to providing the highest quality education to all of our students, we're proud of our ability to offer a wide variety of academic pathways and of our high graduation rate, which is above 94 percent. The district takes pride in being a responsible steward of public resources and maintaining our facilities.

None of the district's successes would be possible without our dedicated teachers, staff and members of the Hockinson community. We are proud of our past and excited about our future, knowing that it will be shaped by the teaching and learning of today.
